April 24, 2017

A reminder that the introductory meeting for current 8th graders who are thinking about playing Hanover High School Girls soccer this fall will be held this Thursday night (April 27) at 7:00pm at the Richmond Middle School in Hanover. This is an opportunity for anyone who is even thinking about playing soccer to find out more about the program. Coaches and players will be there to provide you with an overview of the program and to answer your questions . . . so come with questions! The meeting is for players and their parents. We look forward to meeting you.

November 20 – Play Futsal Today!

November 20, 2016

Weekly futsal sessions will start today (Sunday Nov. 20) at 3:00pm, in the Marion Cross School Gym in Norwich. Entrance is on the right (south) side, toward the back of the building. The session runs from 3:00 to 4:00pm.

Futsal is an excellent opportunity for players hoping to improve their soccer skills and to ‘move up’ in the 2017 season. All you need is a sneakers, shorts and a t-shirt. Watt Alexander, an experienced soccer coach and futsal maven runs the sessions, which involve a brief warm-up and games.

These sessions are available to all HHS players, regardless of your team level during the 2016 season . . . and Coach Kennedy thinks this is a really good idea.

Sylvie Alexander runs a Facebook page with futsal schedule updates. Be in touch with Sylvie if you’d like to be included: sylviealexander@hanovernorwichschools.org

November 4 – Season’s End

November 4, 2016

The soccer season came to an end last night as the Varsity girls went down 0-1 to Oyster River in the Division II Semifinal at Stellos Stadium. The girls played well and fought to the end. This was a fun group that put everything they had into the team and soccer. Sorry to see it come to an end.
